So here are my pics from my six-night break in Tasmania - better known down under as ´Tassie´!
Based in Hobart, I sailed to Tasman Island, visited the old penitentiary and convict settlement buildings of infamous Port Arthur (chilling and v spooky - especially the asylum!) and was uber-impressed by Hobart´s surprisingly funky modern art galleries and museums.
My only regret was not hiring a car and taking myself off to the likes of Wine Glass Bay and Cradle Mountain. Ho hum - I´ll just have to go back one of these days!!
Wacky installation art at Salamanca Arts Centre The installation comprised of an island of sand throughout which electric guitars on stands linked up to large amplifiers had been placed randomly like perches. Dozens of finches (or otherwise small chirpy birds) had then been released into the installation area. Hopping from guitar to guitar, the little birds created a form of sound art. Altogether very intriguing.
